Google's New wave technology
The new online tool named as Wave, which marries real time communication with natural language tools.
Google issued invitations to developers to test its new online tool. Google issued invites to 100,000 developers, who can each ask five other testers to join their wave. Google also has asked developers to create their own APIs for the Wave offering. The new technology lets users create a wave and add people to it. Members of a wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets and feeds from other Web sources. In addition, users can directly insert a reply or edit in the wave. And since it’s live, concurrent rich-text editing, users can instantly see what their fellow members are typing in their wave.
Natural language processing is another Wave feature, which is basically an automatic spell correction system. Wave also features e-mail gateways that link to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
